Looks Great!!!

Everything now counts as a winter ascent. I like this time of year for lots of reasons and the reduced traffic and crowds are one of them.


I just hope the weather holds through this weekend. :pray: We have a pretty cool summit planned in Yosemite.

Packing last night. Big gig upcoming early Feb. SCUBA diving Maldives (in the Indian Ocean). Got to pack up and do some Modifications to my Under Water camera gear tonight. A huge deal, spare batteries, parts everything. Different ports. One fuck-up and no pix. Or lose the camera if not properly leashed. Nek Minnit it's disappearing into the depths. Destroyed two of them in 2010.


I remember you mentioning when you first signed up for that trip. Should be awesome.

No, dude. It was too damn windy even though we picked Sierra Buttes since it was one of the less windy areas last weekend. Tahoe peaks were getting 60 mph ridge gusts.

Biz was planning for an ice route on Shasta, but backed off due to 100 mph winds. It was just a bit breezy last weekend.

Yup.

100 mph (~170kph) winds do it for me as well. Here's my pool last year after 100 mph winds. That garden bench weighs over 20kg (44lbs).
